It was just announced that the season premiere of the much-anticipated X-Factor, received half the ratings of the premiere of American Idol.
This is probably not good news for Executive Producer and judge Simon Cowell. But to be fair, when Idol debuted years ago, reality singing shows were virtually non-existent. So even if X-Factor had just a percentage of the Idol ratings, seems like that is still considered great news for FOX.
Although the hit show “Modern Family” had over 14-million viewers, X-Factor sill pulled in over 12-million viewers, so Simon can hold his head high.
In my opinion, X-Factor is very similar to American Idol. But I am glad it is on and believe it lived up to my expectations. I loved it! What about you? Do you think X-Factor is better than American Idol?
